Youth Folk Workshop

We so excited for Sam Sweeney & Rob Harbron’s YOUTH FOLK WORKSHOP at 9.30-12.30 on Saturday 19 January 2018.

It’s a free workshop for 12-18 yr-olds grade 4+ (booking essential) which will take place at Centre for Young Musicians Taunton, Richard Huish College, South Road, Taunton.

Be part of an instant folk band with National Youth Folk Ensemble leaders and inspirational folk performers Sam Sweeney and Rob Harbron!

You will learn folk tunes by ear and turn them into full band arrangements through a collaborative and creative process.

This practical workshop will develop your listening skills, introduce you to folk-specific techniques, and give you a taster of playing with other musicians in a fun folk ensemble. All instruments welcome.
